Laphroaig, pronounced La-froyg, is a premium scotch whisky made on the island of Islay off the coast of Scotland. To further the promote golf and scotch relations, Laphroaig is giving one of you a Laphroaig Golf Bag complete with Laphroaig Golf Balls.
Single Malt Quarter Cask: The Quarter Cask is a very scotchy scotch, meaning that it holds gratuitous amounts of that sweet smokey taste that many scotch lovers are drawn to. This single malt is first aged in normal-size barrels then transferred to a small quarter size cask which gives the scotch 30% more contact with the inner surface of the barrel and intensifies the maturation process. The smell is powerful, noticeable from the moment you open the bottle, and mirrors the finish nicely. The body is full and the palate is complex and smokey with hints of sweetness.
18 Year Old: There is always something special about a scotch that is old enough to vote. The 18 year old is a little more subtle than the Single Malt Quarter Cask and because of its age, a lot smoother. The smell brings with it 18 years of oak proximity and a faint hint of the sea. By adding a touch of a water you can help open up the seaweed and salt; yet still keep balance with the sweet honey, vanilla, and peat. The body holds a strong depth to it while the taste holds increasing levels of complexity. It will take a couple of tries to really pinpoint all the flavors. You can find hints of toffee, chocolate, honey, seaweed, and peat smokiness.
